Good CEO performance depends on strong support

A recent article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review suggests many nonprofits do not have enough cooperation between the board and the chief executive.

Taking information from more than 200 CEOs who were surveyed by the Bridgespan Group, the article reports that 46 percent of nonprofit chief executives felt the boards at their companies did not help them settle into their roles.

Furthermore, other sources suggest that this lack of involvement can stall businesses unprepared to handle a new leader. To counter this, nonprofit boards should have a clear onboarding plan in place and play an active role in managing the CEO, pacing it according to the best needs of their company. Then, they have a more solid ground from which to form a relationship with the incoming candidate and create a better start to their CEO tenure

Experienced executive recruiters can help your organization develop a plan, much like YES Partners can with its own version of this adoption process. 

To get a better idea of how YES Partners is specifically geared to help with this, take a look at our Methodology Plan. This 13-point schedule demonstrates how YES Partners can work based on your specifications, which are reviewed during the initial assessment period.

During the final stages of the recruiting process, the relationship between your board and the incoming CEO candidate can be determined to ensure a smooth transition.

Executive recruitment should be seen as just the beginning of the relationship between the board and the executive, and should be used as to set the tone of the relationship going forward.
